The Turing Test


Published 2001


Artificial Intelligence Computer Algorithms compete with each other in a Game Show setting where they attempt to pass the 'Turing Test' and be accepted as human.The work represents a new paradigm in computer generated filmmaking. The realistic 3D human-like digital actors were recorded in real-time directly from the display of a standard PC. The characters' dialogue was created from textwith a text to speech engine or automaticallysychronized to real voice audio clips. The digital actors were 'directed' using a markup language to describe behaviours and expressions, with real-time interactive playback.Software: LifeFXHardware: PC, Graphics Card

The checkmate joke took me a second to get -- very clever! I enjoyed the nerdy jokes. Good job.
